This is just the first time there is a <em>book</em> with my name anywhere on it (back cover, <span class="caps">POW</span>!) and I will simmer down shortly. When I get a book of my very entire own published, however, this level of bloggery will seem by contrast quite mild.</p> Fermi Paradox anthology on shelves 2010-06-03T23:32:00+00:00 2010-06-03T23:33:02+00:00 <p><img src="" alt="Cover of the DAW Books anthology Is Anybody Out There?" title="Is Anybody Out There?" style='border: 0px; margin-left:5px' align="right" height="250" /><br /> <a href='' title='' rel='powells'><em>Is Anybody Out There?</em></a>, edited by Nick Gevers and Marty Halpern, had a release date of June 1.

When it comes out in June, you know I&#8217;ll haunt the shelves at Powell&#8217;s downtown and take photos of it. Because that is how ridiculous I can be.</p>
